Handle Making Video: Pulling Handles Directly off a Pot

Posted On May 16, 2008 1 Comment

In this video, Andrew Sanders of Dixon, New Mexico, demonstrates pulling handles directly on the pot–a very handy skill indeed! This technique results in a more organic relationship between the handle and the vessel. And, because you, well,  handle your handle less, you’ll reduce the chance of accidentally nicking or dinging work and avoid extra clean-up time. Watch the video, then try it for yourself! -Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
